    a really great whisky
    the flavors waft back and forth, perfectly matched
    Fruit, oak, sea, dirt ... everything fits together
    • Nose
      a lot of sherry, berry mix, and a lot of orange
      Honey with herbs
      Grape nut with sea salt

      with water:
      the fruitiness is stronger: orange, tangerine, mirabelle, raisin, grapes, plums with cinnamon
    • Taste
      Tingling, sweetness, dark fruits, milk chocolate
      the fruits become riper and juicier
      Sea and a distant trail of smoke
      full and strong without being stingy

      with water:
      is much sweeter and also here the fruits are better to advantage
      the maritime character is also increasing
    • Finish
      fruity, sweetish with oak and distant sea

    Very decent whisky. The oak is a little too dominant for my taste though.
    • Nose
      Light peat smoke. Heavy cask influence that shows in a pretty rich spiciness. The sherry has to stand back in line at first. Then it shows with quite some sweetness. A kinda floral and peppery touch as well. 
    • Taste
      Powerful start, but oily at the same time. Very spicy oak initially. Quite some peat smoke from the start. More than in the nose. Little sweetness, just a hint of sherry left over. Becomes pretty bitter and quite dry. 
    • Finish
      Medium long finish. Mostly bitter oak and light peat smoke. Malty.

    • Nose
      Wood, dark fruits, plum, well-integrated alcohol, very pleasant
    • Taste
      Sherry, sweetness, oak, cocoa, dark chocolate, light bitterness
    • Finish
      De taste unfolds wonderfully in the mouth, the volatile elements quickly and the sherry-wood substance remains and it runs the water in the mouth together. After a long time, the whisky is gone.

    • Nose
      Smoke, peat and resin. Beautiful program. It's almost tactile, thick. Dense. Dates, figs and black grapes, plums. Clove and black tea infused. Cocoa, roasted coffee and tobacco. Unfortunately for me, a trace of sulfur to the limit of my tolerance (which is weak, it is true)
    • Taste
      We find a beautiful smoky and oily peat. A beautiful and complex length for a whisky of this age. Blindly it could easily be confused with an HP. Cinnamon, gasoline to burn, therebentine. Wet leather. Long.
    • Finish
      Phenolic, asphalted, vegetable tar. Smoke. Beautiful fat and oily conclusion.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This Springbank has more of a Highland Park profile than a Springbank profile, but it's pretty good.
    • Nose
      Peat smoked and iodized, a little dry straw. All this with a layer of sherry over: dried leather, dry sherried fruit (black plum), sweet spices.
      Peaty gingerbread, what!
      A good nose that does not fade.
      Wet tobacco arrives thereafter.
    • Taste
      Salty dried fruits, a little hay in the background. Very fat and oily in the mouth.
      A milipoil of phenol. Exotic spices.
      It's round and good.
    • Finish
      Dry final (more on grass than wood) and peppery. Long in the throat.

    From website www.anamnah-alba.com : Colour:
    red and gold Nose: Clear Sherrynote, directly present. Smoke and wood, slightly maritime. Nice. Taste:
    Good drinkable 54.6% go very soft and oily. Dreamcloth. Delicious. Soft.
    Smoky, with a sweet not too sweet Sherrynote. The typical Springbank taste is knotlessly intertwined with sherry and salt! Class.
    Water: Nothing is developing, it is not necessary. Somewhat milder, a little rounder, yes. But overall, it tastes miles better without water. echo:
    He comes to stay. Fettich ... öölich ....: D ... a fine match between sherry, smoke and sea.
